One function of the adrenal gland is to make cortisol, a hormone that helps you deal with stress. Cortisol is also responsible for regulating the immune system. Adrenal fatigue occurs when you’ve overworked your adrenal gland, and you feel like you’re falling apart. With constant stress, the adrenal gland becomes overstimulated, and it eventually stops working normally, resulting in a wide range of symptoms.
We can manage adrenal fatigue without steroids, but it first has to be recognized. We test the adrenals using the ZRT saliva test, checking a four-point cortisol level. We use adaptogenic herbs, IV vitamins and recommend lifestyle changes to help you get back on track. Dr. Roz will discuss your unique symptoms and expectations during your consultation to curate a personalized treatment plan just for you.
